Get ready hip hop heads, you’ve never seen a battle like this! We’re setting the stage for the savviest rap music, history, and culture fans to come correct in a fact-based challenge all about the most popular genre in America. The Hip Hop Bid to Win Trivia Game is an all new, original bidding style trivia game that lets you show off your swagger by the numbers, and it’s available now by The Op!
Packed with curated content by encyclopedic writer, producer, and former rapper Jensen Karp (aka “Hot Karl” behind the mic), this deep dive into the timeless and complex culture includes 600 questions touching on categories like Tracklisting and Beefs & Controversies. Get together your crew of up to six players, and start flexing your knowledge with questions like:
- Who is the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill in 1998 to have a #1 song on the Hot 100?
- What iconic artist makes a cameo as a DJ in Blondie’s “Rapture” video, filling in for Grandmaster Flash who didn’t show up for filming?
- Rick Ross is a franchisee of what international food chain?
Then, let the games begin! “Bid to win” by choosing a bid card from 1 through 6 based on your confidence level. Whoever has the highest unique card gets the first shot at answering.
But check it, if someone else sets down the same value, you’re both out of the running and those cards are out of your hands. So choose wisely! Part of the game is tripping up your challengers so that the number on your card is yours alone. Only then can you grab the proverbial mic and answer correctly for the point.
Get the question right? Drop the mic and slap one of your personal cassette tapes onto the magnetic scoreboard. Caught slippin’? Watch your back, because the next player has a chance to steal that point! Hit up everyone around the table until someone nails it, or everyone’s stumped. Then it’s on to the next with another roll of the die. The first player with all five of their tapes on display climbs their way to the win! If you know the world of hip hop, there’s always someone new on the rise. This twist in the scoring makes for some heated competition when the next person in line’s about to come up on the prize.
Hip Hop Bid to Win Trivia Game is for 2-6 players, ages 12 plus, and comes with 1 magnetic boombox Game Board, 30 magnetic color-coded Player Scoring Markers, 100 double-sided Question Cards, 36 Bidding Cards, 1 Die, and Rules.
